(NewsBreakDaily.org) – March For Our Lives (MFOL) activists have been in the spotlight lately, pushing for gun control. Their entire purpose is to make schools safer for our children. However, the truth is their ideologies end up doing the exact opposite.
Anybody with good sense knows that guns are not the problem. Therefore, passing laws that restrict guns and strip away our Second Amendment rights are not the answer. Instead, MFOL policies end up putting more children at risk than ever before.
Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the Parkland school shooting, is well aware of this. He recently wrote a scathing piece for Breitbart pointing out just how flawed the MFOL ideologies really are.
Pollack explains that his daughter didn’t lose her life because of the Second Amendment. What killed her were “the failures of the Broward County school district, sheriff’s office, and mental health services.”
MFOL Refuses to Help
However, David Hogg and other MFOL activists refuse to acknowledge this fact. Rather than work to change the systems that allowed the Parkland shooting to happen, they turn a blind eye and only focus on pushing the liberal gun-control agenda.
Pollack says he and other parents who had lost their children begged Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, another high-profile Parkland survivor, to stand with them in an attempt to hold the school board accountable. But they had no interest.
In fact, when the meeting focusing on this topic took place, only one kid from MFOL — Cameron Kasky — showed up. He was so fed up with MFOL that he was about to walk away from the organization altogether.
What’s Being Done to Keep Schools Safe
Several recent bills in Florida are aimed at protecting students and preventing another school shooting from happening. One of the most talked-about measures lawmakers have taken is known as the Guardian Bill.
However, not everyone is impressed with these laws. Under these new rules, “guardians” (armed school officials) would have to be trained by the sheriff’s department rather than private security companies. Some say this is a waste of taxpayer money.
“Not only does this waste taxpayer resources, it compromises the plans of school officials who believe they are making sufficient efforts toward compliance only to later find out that their intended designees are not eligible to serve,” explains a report from the December grand jury tasked with analyzing how the initiatives from 2018 are playing out in real life.
One thing’s for sure, no matter who trains them, the guardians and other measures pushed by Pollack are necessary.
March For Our Lives ideologies, on the other hand, do absolutely nothing to keep our children safe. Democrats have used these kids to push their own anti-gun agenda and hide the real truth of why these shootings happen. In the process, they’ve made our children more unsafe than ever.
